If you own a website, TRAFFIC is your most important statistic….but now Google, the worlds largest search engine, has a plan to change your website ranking based on traffic and popularity. They plan to rank your website based on “accuracy” and “trustworthiness”.
That plan could destroy any website that doesn’t report a mainstream perspective that Google calls “accurate” and “trustworthy” …like CNN for example.
Instead of counting incoming links, the system would use Google’s Knowledge Vault to determine the accuracy of your website. Google will decide if your website is a quality Website.
There is plenty of disinformation on the internet and it may be “google agents” that are doing it to generate distrust of alternate media.
Allowing a search giant like GOOGLE to decide what is and isn’t true should have freedom loving people worried. Look at Google’s public positions on many controversial topics and you know who they will target.
Whether it’s their position on man-made climate change, vaccinations, or immigration, Google has repeatedly exposed their position on many of today’s most important issues.
The New Scientist reveals which “incorrect” articles would be targeted by Google:
“The internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free “news” stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness.
Google’s search engine currently uses the number of incoming links to a web page as a proxy for quality, determining where it appears in search results. So pages that many other sites link to are ranked higher. This system has brought us the search engine as we know it today, but the downside is that websites full of misinformation can rise up the rankings, if enough people link to them.”
Google has deep connections to the establishment, specifically the Obama Administration. On election night, Google’s Chairman AND member of Bilderberg, Eric Schmidt, was working for President Ob ama’s campaign office to get him reelected.
A few years later, in September 2014, Megan J. Smith who worked nine years as VP of Business Development at Google was named the nations new Chief Technology Adviser to the President.
Kyle Smith of the New York Daily News has more:
Google employees contributed more to President Obama’s re-election than did employees of any other company except Microsoft. Google lobbyists met with Obama White House officials 230 times. By comparison, lobbyists from rival Comcast have been admitted to the inner sanctum a mere 20 or so times in the same period.
On Election Night [Schmidt] was in our boiler room in Chicago,” Obama lieutenant David Plouffe told Bloomberg News, in a story that revealed that for the campaign, Schmidt “helped recruit talent, choose technology and coach the campaign manager, Jim Messina, on the finer points of leading a large organization.
Google has violated the law repeatedly to collect user data. Their illegal “wi-spy” program of collecting user data over home wi-fi hubs using its Street View cars has led to investigations and fines for violations of the law in countries around the world. Investigators were outraged when they reviewed the downloaded data and found Google had collected massive amounts of personal emails and data revealing everything from people’s medical histories to their sexual preference to marital infidelity. (Google’s defense that that it was all okay because they never looked at the illegally collected data is eerily similar to the NSA’s).
federal Trade Commission investigators found Google had secretly placed “cookies” to track the online activities of people using the Safari web browser, despite having publicly “told these users they would automatically be opted out of such tracking.” Google paid a $22.5 million fine for this illegal data collection operation.
We know for a fact that Google is giving corporate advertisers access to users based on the personal data they control — and many of those advertisers are targeting individuals with the intent to sell them toxic products (Monsanto) and rip them off financially (unscrupulous investment and high interest loan companies).
Google and Facebook PRETEND TO BE defenders of user privacy, but when California tried to pass simple law this year to allow users to find out what data has been collected about them by online companies, those same companies mobilized and killed the bill dead in its tracks. (See Silicon Valley Stomps on Digital Disclosure Bill).
Governments and private companies who finance politicians into power have more and more personal data on us. They are tagging us like cattle– that’s a fact of life in the digital age.
People need to have greater knowledge of exactly what data governments and corporations have collected about them. We need tougher rules to make sure that the national security state can’t abuse potential dissidents with that data and that predatory financial firms aren’t assisted by companies like Google in preying on consumers.
